Simms G4 Pro Shift Backpack Review / Camera Bag Reviews

I get a lot of questions about how I keep my camera gear safe when fishing, so I thought I would make a short video to go over the bags I've used throughout the years and the newest bag I'm using (Simms G4 Pro Shift).  If anyone has any questions, feel free to send them to me via the link on the side.

Trout Tails - June 25, 2019

The last I looked, Pennsylvania has had measurable precipitation 48% of the year.  In other words, it has rained just about every other day.  This has been kind of a blessing and a curse all at the same time.  It has allowed us to float a lot longer than normal, but has also blown out water a good bit.  Despite the rain, it has been a busy month or two and I have not had much time to sit down and process many photos until now.  Between float trips, we (Doc Fritchey TU) had our annual veteran's fishing day and women's fishing day.  Last weekend we were on Yellow Creek in Indiana Pa fishing for pellet heads with Cicadas because my wife had won a trip at our annual TU banquet, just about every other stream in the state was chocolate milk, and.....Cicadas!

Adi is so intent, actually watches your fly and stares at a fish when it rises....not to mention tries to help you release them once you hook them.

Stockies, but Heidi got some lessons on how to fight large fish.  

I had to at least catch a few

Trout Tails - May 12, 2019

It has pretty much rained for a year and a half straight now on the east coast.  Last year seemed like it was almost a complete washout.  This year at least seems like it is off to a better start.  I was able to get the boat out several days already this year, and yesterday some strange yellow orb was in the sky.  There have been some pretty good caddis and march brown hatches as of late, but it is pouring rain as I type this and is supposed to rain for the next couple days.  The coming week looks to be a blow out, but maybe by the weekend things will start to clear.  For now, here are a couple shots from this past weekend.
